Israel smashes Palestinian armada

Ha'aretz reports that Israel has sunk a Palestinian boat off the coast of Gaza. According to Israel:
the boat had entered prohibited waters and ignored an order to stop, and when the Israeli forces fired warning shots in the air, Palestinians on the boat fired on the navy ship. The navy said its vessel was then also fired on from the shore.
According to a Palestinian source:
the Palestinian killed in the incident had been on a fishing trip. Palestinian security sources maintained that the boat had been in an area where fishing was permitted, and that the navy fired on the boat and on another boat without provocation.
Ahh, the miracle of Israel's survival in a sea of hatred.
